Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7094
laconic, trypophobia, harbinger, poodle
There once was a Granny from Poole,
Whose speech was concise as a rule,
She spake so laconic
And rudely sardonic
That people would think her a fool.
 
They learned of her fears - trypophobia
And all agreed what they would do to her:
To have some fine sport
A poodle they brought
That had curly ringlets clipped in her fur.
 
That Granny freaked out in her room
At this evil harbinger of doom;
She turned quite loquacious
Though the doom was fallacious,
And never returned to her gloom.
